An absolutely slammed week of events all over Europe, from the big — like Activate London 2012 — to the not-so-big to the first big event to mark the launch of General Assembly in London to (cough) yours truly taking part in a debate on the future of technology journalism.
Here are three that seem particularly interesting.
Microsoft TechEd Europe, Amsterdam, June 26-29
If you build anything using Microsoft’s stack, this is the place to be: four days of training, talks, education and learning for those who want to get a better handle on what they’re going to be doing down the line.
Pop!Tech Iceland, Reykjavik, June 27-29
The first appearance in Europe of the long-running annual shindig in Maine: think a more intimate version of TED. Appearances by a number of thought-provoking speakers, including the “undercover economist” Tim Harford and Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton. The theme is “resilience.”
MLove, Berlin, June 27-29
The mobile festival to end all mobile festivals, held in a 19th century castle and featuring an array of speakers from across the industry talking about new opportunities. Includes obligatory startup competition.
